Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? Keeps losing fins like shredded not lost in chunks.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? Never has changed, swims a lot and seems happy.
When did you start noticing the symptoms? Since I bought him
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? Yes, I've tried Maracyn 2, and have tried him twice with it. His fins are getting better and show new growth but a new area (not the area with growth) seems to have rot while the old area is healing? And I think his eye changes all the time. Sometimes is bulging sometimes it looks like its getting better (and almost looks like a hole/cave in his eye). It's weird. He has always had "buggy eyes". I took a pic above but no pine cone look that I see?
Does your fish have any history of being ill? Since I've bought him, same story.
How old is your fish (approximately)? Not sure but I've had him for two months.
Thanks in advance! I will upload some pics.
